by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 19th 2011 7:33AM
The phone-hacking scandal that took down British tabloid newspaper 'The News of the World' and could now threaten the parent company behind Fox TV, has reached all the way up to the top of the corporate power structure.

Today, News Corp. Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch, his son James and former senior executive Rebekah Brooks will be quizzed by British MPs on what they knew about the phone hacking allegations engulfing News International, the British arm of Murdoch's global empire, and whether there was a cover-up.

They are not the only ones facing questions today. Two former high-ranking police officers will also be appearing. Sir Paul Stephenson resigned as Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sunday night, and John Yates quit his post as an Assistant Commissioner Monday.

Glenn Beck Says Goodbye To Fox News (VIDEO)

A clip from the retrospective on the last broadcast of the 'Glenn Beck Show' on FOX NewsGlenn Beck said goodbye to his audience and looked back on his tumultuous tenure at Fox News on Thursday, the last episode of the 'Glenn Beck Show' (weekdays, 5PM on Fox News). Of course, there was the requisite career retrospective full of clips from his time on the network, starting with his first show January 19, 2009. Media Matters had released their own highlight reel of Beck's most outrageous statements earlier in the day, but Beck's focused on the good times.

"This is only the third time that I've actually done live TV, so buckle up 'cuz it could get very, very bumpy," he said on that first broadcast. The mostly goofy clips that followed confirmed that, as Beck struggled to find the correct camera to address and pieces of his backdrop fell behind him, interrupting a rant about out of control government.

President Obama Urges Congress To Get Debt Ceiling Deal Done Before Deadline, Like His Daughters Do Their Homework (VIDEO)

President Obama discusses the debt ceiling on Fox NewsIn his first press conference since March, President Obama urged Congressional leaders to come together to reach a deal on the debt ceiling in advance of the looming August 2 deadline. Speaking live at an event carried by all the major networks, Obama argued that the game of political brinksmanship being played was harmful to the economy and downright irresponsible. Adding a dose of humor to the proceedings, he used his young daughters' homework habits as an example of what he'd like to see from Congress.

"That's not how responsible families act," Obama said. "Malia and Sasha generally finish their homework a day ahead of time. Malia's 13, Sasha's 10. It is impressive. They don't wait until the night before, they're not pulling all-nighters."

"You know, Congress can do the same thing," he continued. "If you know you've got to do something, just do it." Now, some might say that international economics are slightly more complicated than Algebra I, but he's got a good point anyway.

Jon Stewart Says Fox News Told the Truth, and Then Took it Back (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'We have a feeling that this little television "conversation" between Jon Stewart and Chris Wallace isn't going to end any time soon. Unless Wallace just backs down and stops talking about it altogether. It seems every time Wallace goes to defend himself, 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) is ready to volley the ball right back into their court.

When Jon Stewart was on Wallace' show a few weeks, the host said: "I think we're the counterpoint [of NBC News]. I think that they have a liberal agenda and I think we tell the other side of the story."

Stewart jumped on that "other side" statement as an admission, by Wallace, of a conservative agenda, but Wallace has rebutted that by clarifying his intention.

Donald Trump Hits Back at Robert De Niro: 'Not the Brightest Bulb on the Planet' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Apr 25th 2011 2:00PM
Over the weekend Robert De Niro had some harsh words for Donald Trump, comparing him to a used-car salesman for his constant questioning of Barack Obama's birthplace.

Of course, Trump jumped at the opportunity to respond to De Niro's criticism when it was brought up during a phone interview he did Monday on 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays, 6 AM ET on Fox News)

"Well, he's not the brightest bulb in the planet," Trump said of De Niro. "I have been watching him over the years and I like his acting but in terms of when I watch him doing interviews and various other things, we are not dealing with Albert Einstein."

Jon Stewart Spoofs Glenn Beck's Fox Departure (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart as Glenn Beck on 'The Daily show'Jon Stewart whipped out the glasses and the chalkboard, embraced the weird camera angles, and spent the first 20 minutes of 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) reporting on Glenn Beck's departure from Fox News as if he was Glenn Beck.

Although the spoof was often longer in ambition than execution, Stewart did an excellent job of parodying Beckian logic in a nifty riff on the Nielsen ratings.

"People will tell you Glenn was fired because of plummeting ratings: 30 percent of his viewers have abandoned him, his audience's medium age is now dead of natural causes," Stewart-as-Beck-commenting-on-Beck hysterically explained.

According to various reports, Fox News and Glenn Beck could part ways when Beck's contract expires in December.

Stephen Colbert is preparing for this potential "Beckpocalyse" with his "Emergency Beck Pack," which he introduced on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

It's a spoof, beef stroganoff-filled version of the survivalist-themed backpack Beck has pitched to his 'Glenn Beck Program' audiences.

So, what else is in a Beck Pack?

"One copy of every book Glenn has written, plus enough empty space to fit in the ones he writes between the time you order and the time the backpack is delivered next week," Colbert explained.

Donald Trump has been taking his new-found "birtherism" on the talk show circuit lately, most notably clashing with Whoopi Goldberg on 'The View' over his misguided contention that Barack Obama may have been born in another country.

Bill O'Reilly has also clashed with Goldberg in the past, but he agreed with her position on Obama's birth, and called Trump out for spreading the birther myth on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (weekdays, 8 PM ET on Fox News)

Jon Stewart to Bret Baier: Much Like 'Three's Company,' Fox News' High Ratings Don't Equal Quality (VIDEO)

Bret Baier on 'The Daily Show'Bret Baier, the host of Fox New's six o'clock show 'Special Report,' stopped by 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11 PM ET on Comedy Central.) At the beginning of the interview Jon Stewart suggested to Baier that he was a "human shield" because he is the guy Fox News uses to argue that they have good journalists, not just partisan personalities.

Baier rejected that characterization, and this prompted a long disagreement between them about the nature of Fox News. Toward the end of their debate they had this exchange, which summed up each of their positions:

"Listen, on the opinion shows there's no doubt on Fox they come from the right," Baier explained. "But if you watch my show, Shepard Smith's show ... "

CNN's Nic Robertson Blasts Fox News Claim That Gaddafi Used Him as Human Shield (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 22nd 2011 5:40AM

According to the report, British forces were forced to call off additional fighter jet attacks because the journalists were there.

On 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (Weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN) CNN's Nic Robertson, who was in Gaddafi's compound when this allegedly happened, lashed out at Fox News's reporting on the issue, calling it "Unimaginable, hypocritical, irresponsible, outrageous."

Robertson then disputed Fox News's position that they hadn't sent any of their employees to the compound because they suspected they would be used as human shields. According to Robertson, there was in fact somebody working for Fox News in the compound with him.

Well, it's official: Glenn Beck does not like 'Jersey Shore.' On 'Glenn Beck' (weekdays, 5 PM ET on Fox News), he lamented the fact that the reality show is attracting more viewers than ever before.

"I don't think most Americans even recognize some of the things that pass for entertainment on TV is actually poison. This is the 'Jersey Shore,'" Beck explained, as a clip in the background showed a furious girl-fight between two of the housemates.

"'Jersey Shore' just last week broke the viewing record -- 8.9 million viewers on MTV," Beck continued.

Then Beck read a synopsis of the record-breaking episode, which featured Snooki being released from jail for disorderly conduct.

"Why would this crap attract 9 million people?" Beck cried.

Pot, meet kettle.
